Why you should take the time to get a great headshot

A great headshot doesn’t make you great at your job; it doesn’t make even though slightest difference. So why have one?

 

It’s hard to do sometimes, but remember – It’s not about what you look like, its who you like. People like dealing with people they know, like and trust.  A great headshot is one of the best ways to do that.

A great headshot can show your potential future clients the kind of person you are, are you someone that “people would want to do business with”.  Does your headshot make you look trustworthy, approachable, and someone that they can see themselves doing business with?

Does your headshot look like you? Or does it look like you from a long time ago. Honesty is a big part of making people trust you, if you can’t be honest with yourself in how you look now – how are people going to trust you. Remember, it’s not what you look like  – its who you look like!

I’d love to show a headshot with more hair and a few fewer lbs…. but that’s the real me ( yes I can do something about the lbs, but the hair is long gone…)

If your headshot doesn’t look like you anymore ( ask a friend that will be honest with you – it’s more important what others think of your headshot than what you think of it), and you are in the Ottawa or surrounding areas, Barking Monkey Studio would be happy to help you change that. You can either come to us in our headshot studio, located in Ottawa. Or we can come to you – we love to get out of the studio, especially if it’s a nice sunny day! It’s the small details that make a good headshot great, and at Barking Monkey we don’t stop until you are happy with your new headshot.

Ian had never really seen the value in a professional headshot, after his session he told me he can see the value in one now…

It’s the small details that make a good headshot great, and at Barking Monkey we don’t stop until you are happy with your new headshot. The tiny difference in an expression can be the difference between average and great. If your potential clients can tell that you take care of the details in your own business, they will also be reassured that you will look after them the same way.
